My Bio

I’m fairly new to quilting. I used to make jewelry, but got bored with that a couple of years ago and was looking for my next creative outlet. I got interested in quilting by watching Simply Quilts. It’s strange that quilting appealed to me because I’m extremely sewing challenged … can’t sew a straight line and I spend more time ripping out stitches than sewing! Just the thought of making a traditional quilt with precise cutting and sewing is enough to send me to the loony bin!! Then I discovered Quilting Arts and Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazines and fell in love with art quilting.

I just finished my first wall quilt … a memory quilt of my grandma … and entered it in our local quilt show. I entered it to be judged just for kicks and won a blue ribbon in the art quilt category! You could have knocked me over with a feather! You can see the posts I wrote as I made it at www.cindylarsen.wordpress.com

I recently purchased a new sewing machine and I’m excited to start learning how to free motion quilt. I also have a long list of techniques I want to try. Even though I got bored with making jewelry, I love my thousands of beads and use them to embellish everything I make.
